One of the reasons accident victims are reluctant to claim compensation following a no-fault accident is that they need to find a suitably-qualified lawyer. Knowing who is qualified to process these types of claims can be difficult without a personal recommendation, but we have an in-house team of solicitors who can make your claim for a public transport accident in Colchester on a no win, no fee basis.
What is no win, no fee?
This is a system of claiming compensation that reduces your financial risk. It also allows you to start a claim without paying any legal fees in advance. All our specialist solicitors operate in this way, making it much easier to start a claim and offering a little peace of mind to customers.
Should your claim be unsuccessful, you will not have to pay any legal fees to your solicitor, which is a huge benefit for accident victims still traumatised by what has happened.
So what are the eligibility requirements for making a personal injury claim, and what else can we do to help?
Criteria to claim for your public transport accident in Colchester
If you meet these three requirements, you may be able to start a claim for personal injury compensation:
- The accident happened within the last three years
- It was not your fault
- Your injuries were treated by a medical professional
In some cases, the three-year timescale starts from the date on which the injuries were officially linked to the accident. This is because there can be a delay in realising that you have been injured – in some cases of whiplash, for example.
